About: My Journey to Becoming a Professional Web Developer


Hi There! 👋

Hello, I’m Matt Hummel, a self-taught and personable web developer in Fredericksburg, Virginia. With extensive experience in web development and a commitment to delivering outstanding results, I’ve had the privilege of working on numerous exciting projects.

Professional Experience

During my recent position as a SharePoint Developer contractor for the U.S. Marine Corps, I worked closely with the team manager to create custom applications and enhance workflows. I prioritized site migration and efficiency improvements by utilizing my proficiency in Microsoft PowerApps and Power Automate. Additionally, I efficiently managed SharePoint site views and collections to ensure alignment with content requirements.

Previously, I gained valuable experience at Germanna Community College, specializing in responsive website development with WordPress CMS. Working with multiple teams, we focused on improving user experience and driving website traffic, resulting in increased enrollment. I also successfully implemented a website redesign to optimize content editing and user experience. Utilizing tools like Google Analytics, Google Tag Manager, SiteImprove, and Monsido, I effectively managed marketing campaigns and ensured web governance for improved SEO performance.

My Journey Before Becoming a Developer: Exploring My Path and Passion

Before starting my web development journey, I acquired valuable skills through diverse retail roles. These experiences emphasized the importance of hard work, exceptional customer service, and attention to detail. After a decade, I decided to pursue a career change and independently learned web development through various resources like books, online courses, and college classes. Ultimately, this path led me to my first professional role at Germanna Community College, where I continue to grow in the field.

Fun Facts About Me

I’m a proud dad of twin 1-year-old boys, a loving husband, and a big fan of the Philadelphia Eagles and Phillies. In my free time, I like to connect with nature by going camping, fishing, hitting the beach, and chilling with a good movie.

I’m currently on the lookout for full-time job opportunities and contract work. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions or need help! You can contact me through my contact form or connect with me on LinkedIn. Excited to hear from you!
